Stefon Diggs takes advantage of lax celebration rule after two touchdowns

We saw Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs pay tribute to Randy Moss after a second-quarter touchdown Monday night and Browns rookie DeShone Kizer kick up his heels after a score on Sunday. "I think it showed with the way they played tonight".

Bradford got comfortable behind his much-maligned offensive line, and the Vikings took to the air against the New Orleans defense.

No player in Monday's game took more advantage of the NFL's buttoned down rule change to encourage more personality and celebration after big plays.

I talked to Diggs at 7:45 a.m. Tuesday, and frankly he sounded more well-rested than me even though he had finished a professional football game the night before while I had merely watched.

He went on to play eight of his 14 National Football League seasons with the Vikings, finishing behind only Cris Carter on the franchise's all-time record list in receiving yards (9,316), touchdowns (92), and receptions (587).

The Vikings spent the offseason proclaiming a need for more explosive plays and downfield passes, and if that's to come, Diggs will likely be at the heart of it. They played fast. They played confident.

To make matters even better, Diggs wasn't even done there in the first half, as he would pull in another score right before halftime hit. "We have a lot of confidence in him".

Adrian Peterson, in his return to Minnesota, was held to just 18 yards on six carries for the Saints and had words with head coach Sean Payton on the sideline after being benched early in the game.

How about making some history while we're at it?

"It was bad", tight end Kyle Rudolph said with a laugh. "He's a great player and I expect him to only get better".
